Animation Career Review cite the ATEC program as  the number two animation school program in the southwest and 20th nationally.  The criteria used in making this list consists of academic reputation, admission selectivity, depth and breadth of the program and faculty, value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness, and geographic location.

According to the Animation Career Review, “Animation programs on the cutting edge are often those that seek to bridge the gap between technology and art, and UT Dallas’ Arts and Technology Department is no different. What is unique is the way in which the program combines an array of faculty and students with varying interests- from performance artists and gamers to programmers and designers. The B.A. in Arts & Technology is tailored to each student and includes animation, interactive games, virtualworlds, sound design and more. An M.A. in the department works similarly, as does the MFA and PhD programs.”

Animation courses in Arts and Technology continue to produce an array of outstanding work by students who are guided by faculty that have been heavily involved in the production of both feature films and pieces which push the boundaries of the industry.
